Minnie Riperton 
Come to My Garden
Janus JXS 7011 - reissue
Come to My Garden was Riperton's debut album, hot  on the heels of her tenure in Rotary Connection, producer, 
arranger, conductor, songwriter Charles Stepney (and 70s
house producer for Chess / Argo Records) recorded  this album originally for the GRT label with lush orchestration  and a jazzy soft-pop feel reminiscent of contemporary
Roberta Flack. The initial release was unsuccessful, but  re-issued in 1973, partially to cash in on her Capitol Records Smash, 
Perfect Angel by Janus Records. While different from that  album, it is now considered to be a classic, and contains many enduring, if woefully unknown classics. Musicians  performing on the album include Ramsey Lewis, Phil Upchurch, 
Maurice White (Earth, Wind & Fire), as well as Stepney.

We do NOT open sealed LPs unless requested. 
We cushion the LP in bubble wrap and use shipping tape 
on all spines to protect the integrity of the box, and to 
insure the safety of the contents. All this is included in

VPI machine if and when necessary. This insures that 
you receive your item in the best possible condition.
